One of the disadvantages of using Google Stadia on a smartphone or tablet is that you must connect your controller via a USB-C cable. However, this scenario will change as early as next year.
Google announced that in 2020, It will now be possible to use the Stadia controller on any smartphone, tablet or PC wirelessly. Still, the company does not say when exactly this option will become available.
Until this happens, a USB-C cable will be required to be able to connect this command to the smartphone. It’s not the end of the world, but it will be more advantageous to be able to use this accessory wirelessly.
However, you can take advantage of a third-party command to play Google Stadia games. Many controllers developed for Xbox, PlayStation or Nintendo Swtich can be connected to a smartphone via Bluetooth.
Portugal is outside the Google Stadia launch countries
As with many Google products, Stadia has literally moved alongside Portugal. The US giant saw no advantage in bringing this streaming gaming service to our country, but Spain was contemplated.
The reasons for this are not known, but now that Google Assistant already speaks Portuguese there is a greater hope that this and other services will reach Portugal. This could happen if Google decides to extend Stadia’s coverage area.
For now, it’s just 14 countries with access to Google Stadia. Given the nature of this service, we only see advantages for widening the target markets.
Gaming is an area that crosses borders and ages. With a service like Google Stadia, our hardware is no longer a hindrance as this process is performed on Google’s servers. For a monthly fee, we have all games available on smartphone, television, PC or tablet.
